Lavish biography about John Reed regarding his thunderous existence in Mexico during the bloody revolution
A biographic chronicle of John Reed dealing with the Mexican revolution in the early 20th century. John Silas "Jack" Reed (October 22, 1887 - October 17, 1920) , he was an American journalist, poet, and socialist activist, best remembered for his first-hand account of the Bolshevik Revolution, Ten Days That Shook the World. He was married to writer and feminist Louise Bryant. Reed died in Russia in 1920 and is one of only three Americans buried in the Kremlin Wall Necropolis, the others being labor organizer Bill Haywood, and Charles Ruthenburg , the founder of the Communist Party USA.

Here concerns itself into the life of the notorious journalist John Reed/Franco Nero in Mexico , adding his relationship to Louise Bryant played by Úrsula Andress . Franco Nero gives a passable acting as Reed , the radical American journalist who becomes involved with the Mexican revolution in Russia, and hopes to bring its spirit and idealism to the United States. The film has a lot of battles and several scenes with crowd and great number of extras . The motion picture was professionally made by the Russian Director: Sergey Bondarchuk .

Various films are based on Reed's accounts of the Mexican Revolution and Russian revolution : the 1973 film Reed: Insurgent Mexico, by Mexican director Paul Leduc, and the two-part Mexican-Soviet-Italian co-production consisting of Red Bells (1982) and Red Bells II (1983), both directed by Sergei Bondarchuk, with Franco Nero as Reed. Being especially known Reds (1981) played and directed by Warren Beatty as John Reed , Diane Keaton , Jerzy Kosinski as Zinoiev , Paul Sorvino , , Edward Herrmann , and Jack Nicholson as Eugene O'Neill .
